it. so we went back to the 2010 obama care regulations and found that the administration actually had estimated that 40% to 67% of those in the individual market would not be able to meet the test to be grandfathered, which is what it takes to keep your own policy, just because of the normal churn in the markets. so they knew a lot of the people in the individual market would not be able to keep their policies but went out there and left the impression that everyone could keep their policy if they liked it. if they had been saying most people can keep their policy if they like it, then it would be accurate. but that's unfortunately not what he's been saying. >> so, lisa, the bottom line here is here that the standard of care through the aca changed so that now all the policies that the insurance companies have to meet that standard of care. if they weren't grandfathered in properly, that means that they are unable to sell them once again. >> that's correct. you're absolutely right. if you do not meet a rather narrow test to be grandfathered, then your new policy has to meet the st

, politico reported that if the online system for getting into obama care coverage is rickety, the system for getting out of the mandate doesn't even exist yet. hhs says it will take another month at least for the administration to finalize the forms for the hardship exemption from the individual mandate. why has it taken three and one-half years to finalize a simple application form for an exemption from the individual mandate? >> well, sir, as you know the individual mandate is not in place until next year. we have made it very clear that if somebody is medicaid eligible in a state that doesn't choose -- >> my last question an my last second. an estimated 16 million people in the individual market have or will receive cancellation notices stating their health insurance coverage does not meet minimum coverage requirements of the affordable care act. the bill specifically grants you, madam secretary, the power to determine the criteria for hardship exemption. will you provide all of these individuals a hardship exemption since the affordable care act has taken away their plan? will

problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> the obama administration says it is pulling out all the stops to try to fix healthcare.gov, including drafting experts from google and other tech firms to help patch up the ailing website, this as we learn that only six people signed up on the first day and 248 people by day two. let's bring in the chairman and ceo of e-health, handled more than 20 million visitors last year. good to see you. thanks for stopping by, gary. give us a sense of how this is more than a website? we have this graphic from xerox which lays out the exchanges. where do you think they got the rocky start here in all of that? >> we're really not an exchange. you're talking about e-commerce. and e-commerce is complex. it's not easy to do. you think about ebay and amazon, it's taken years and years to get those sites, those e-commerce offerings to the point that they're at. it's been the same thing with e-health. we've been at this for 15 years. tremendously complex. i haven't seen your diagram but i'm sure it looks like the plumbing in a nuclear pow
